Dragon's Eye Pendant
Dragon's Eye pendant combines two classic chainmaille weaves (Europen 4-in-1 and Half Persian 3-in-1) into one eye-catching final piece. We recommend learning this project using two different base metals and two colors of anodized aluminum rings as shown to make it easier to follow along with the tutorial.
Steady Hands Required: Portions of this piece are extremely tight and difficult to weave. A steady hand is required to create this pendant. You may also wish to have a set of chain nose or other narrow-nosed pliers on hand to close rings in more challenging spots.
Building Block Prerequisite:
Proficiency in at least 8 chainmaille weaves, including Mesh & Rosettes and Half Persian 3-in-1. Please make sure you are very comfortable with these weaves before attempting to create Dragon's Eye. You'll also need a steady hand and lots of patience. (Be willing to set the weave down and come back to it in a bit if you're having a tricky time!)
